We were lucky to hear and see a service...with a choir of about 5 or 6 men who sounded like many more than that. The ancient mosaics...formerly a baptistery, are beautiful, as is the Iconostasis. The grounds are also lovely and peaceful, and you can take the nearby funicular to or from this complex to the nearby metro.

This is one of the most famous cathedrals of Kiev. The original building suffered a lot in the history. So it was rebuilt a couple of times. The church choire is worth to listen.

The church certainly isn't the grandest I have see in Eastern Europe but it is certainly colourful and ornate. No photos inside and there is a constant stream of pilgrims passing through

A very nice church located in the city of Kiev. The domes are shinning with a bright gold. The church is well maintained it is worth the trip to see the church.

It was a rainy Saturday afternoon, and it was really the beautiful place to visit. It is a very beautiful church from outside as from inside. I had the change to participate in the prayers that day, really not to miss. I didn't know where to look inside of the Cathedral every place you lay your eyes on is a... More

I must have taken 50 pictures of this cathedral. It is immense, and the attention to detail is unbelievable. The color is a cross between a periwinkle blue and robin's egg blue. Without a person in front of it, it is difficult to understand the size.

Easy to find and easy to tour. Well kept site with an active monastery on the grounds. One interesting site witnessed was the blessing of a new purchased vehicle. Drove up just in front of Cathedral and it was blessed with a combination of food and holy water.
